Baby Shower!

Hey! I see I have accumulated quite a few new followers- THANK YOU! :) I love reading the comments you guys leave me and all that fun stuff! I promise I will be posting more regularly now that summer is here! For today I'm going to show you a couple of pictures of the baby shower I hosted for my sister in law who is due in August. Can you tell she is having a boy?=)

I did all the invitations (managed to do them on my Imagine before it got sold!) I made the banners, make the favors, cupcakes, cake pops, etc. I'm SO blessed my mother in law provided the food because honestly, I was so busy I would have completely forgotten!

This is the decorated dessert table...My first ever attempt at a diaper cake is right behind and those tissue balls were made out of what else, tissues :)

I'm particularly proud of my cupcakes because they are the very first batch I have ever decorated with an actual piping bag and tip! I am SO addicted! I even made the buttercream frosting and colored it myself :) Just tooting my own horn here! ;)

I can't believe this is the only shot I got of the banner but the banner was made on my silhouette using a font called "Pleasingly Plump" from dafont.com. ADORABLE right?? She asked to keep it after the shower and of course, I said yes :)

Close up of the VERY simple diaper cake with a bow from CCR- 3D bows. The signs and favor tags where all made on the Cameo :)

That's it! I'm happy to report that she LOVED it and that she now thinks I should plan parties for a living. LOL. No thanks! :) But I will do it for family and friends anytime! haha :)


  1. Looks like the baby shower was a success with all the goodies.

    Stay Creative,

  2. Everything looks gorgeous, it sounds like you were an amazing hostess!

  3. Beautiful party decorations and yummy looking cupcakes.

  4. Hello,

    This is really interesting take on the concept. Baby showers are the most precious moments in the life to-be mother. It allows family and friends to share the joy and excitement of welcoming a new life into the world. Thanks a lot...

  5. What a stunning baby shower it was!! I am just in love with the beautiful d├ęcor and the color scheme used for the entire party. I am also cloud nine because I too would be receiving a carnival inspired baby shower from my sister and mom. It will be hosted at one of the local San Francisco venues.
